St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
As a hotel management company, we knew that we had the opportunity to make a difference. With the large amount of chemicals and water being used in laundry every day, we wanted to find a way to lessen our carbon footprint while supporting a far greater cause. After many meetings, we decided that St. Jude is an organization that firmly believes the importance of investing in future generations, which highly aligns with our beliefs. With our purpose statement being, “To inspire legendary potential by enhancing the lives of all we encounter, empower, and humbly serve.”, we saw a likeness in the mission of St. Jude to continue their work until no child dies of cancer, inspiring legendary potential in every family that walks through their doors.
Every time that you stay at one of our hotels for more than one night, you have the opportunity to invest in future generations and help us lessen our carbon footprint. In your room, you will find a St. Jude-themed door hanger. When you hang this door hanger on your door and opt out of housekeeping stayover service, the hotel will donate $3.00 to St. Jude per night. Don’t worry, this will not affect your 15% off discount in any way!
